Echo In The Canyon, a documentary that spotlights folk rock in 1960’s Los Angeles, hits Blu-ray and DVD on September 10 via Greenwich Entertainment.
Dubbed as the California Sound, folk rock was a fixture in the Los Angeles music scene thanks to the work of The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and The Mamas and the Papas. Musician Jakob Dylan serves as the interview for the Andrew Slater directed project. Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys), Michelle Phillips (The Mamas and the Papas), Stephen Stills (Buffalo Springfield), David Crosby, Eric Clapton, Roger McGuinn (The Byrds) and Tom Petty (the musician’s last filmed interview) are among the artists who took part in the project.
Contemporary artists interviewed include Beck, Fiona Apple, Cat Power, Regina Spektor and Norah Jones. The documentary, which amassed $3 million at the box office, also features a soundtrack which has Dylan covering tracks from the California Sound with various artists from the film. One of the songs include Dylan’s interpretation of The Beach Boy’s “I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times” which features Neil Young on vocals.
